Did you know Simon has card galleries for each of their releases and their card kits, and even a video gallery? It's true and you can add your very own cards and projects to these galleries! Here's a link to all the Simon Brand Galleries and here's the link to the new, Dream Big gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects!


First up is the beautiful, Alstroemeria die. I love how this die comes with a few extra petals for layering. I did some simple Copic coloring and used an oval die, an embossing folder and a die cut sentiment, all older products from Simon, to complete my card.


Next I have a card I created using the Dimensional Cubes stencil set. This set is fantastic! I mean, the possibilities are endless! Is this cool, or what?!


I must have been into blues and greens when I was creating these cards. Lol! Does that ever happen to you? The Talavera Vine cling stamp is another wonderful product from the release. I white embossed it, then used some Distress Inks for the resist technique. And adding sparkle is always a good idea!

I love to use Simon's very own Matte Gold Cardstock when there's floral embossing involved! So elegant! This Terrace Floral embossing folder is gorgeous, and it comes with a matching die too!


And yes, there's some blue in my next card too. What can I say, it IS my favorite color. This is such a darling stamp set! It's called Born to Sparkle and I know it's gonna sell fast, so go grab it quick if you want it! It's so fun to play with for a slimline scene! And there are so many other images in this set. I only used a few.

Okay, so that's it for me. I hope I've given you a few ideas for using some of the products from this wonderful release! Next up on the hop is the very talented, Jennifer Kotas!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
